Providing home care using context-aware agents

Published Online:pp 125-132https://doi.org/10.1504/IJRIS.2010.034908

This paper presents an ambient intelligence based architecture model that defines intelligent hybrid agents. These agents have the ability to obtain automatic and real-time information about the context using a set of technologies, such as radio frequency identification, wireless networks and wireless control devices. The architecture can be implemented on a wide diversity of dynamic environments, especially for providing home care to elderly and dependent people.
